Talk About Art: “A Sign of the Times”

2019 Gallery Talk Michagain Signery Bella-Zack

An historic wind storm ripped through Leelanau County in early August 2015, leveling acres of woodland, forest, and residential structures. The broken remains of sheds, docks and other wood structures provided the raw materials for two young entrepreneurs to turn destruction into construction. Siblings Bella and Zack Pryor talk about the small business they created. This program is open to public at no charge.

Bella Pryor, 18 and a University of Michigan freshman, and her brother Zach, 15 established Michagain Signery in 2015. The duo salvaged storm-damaged wood and began creating iconic, decorative signs. They built a small business, the profits of which were directed back to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Their new enterprise also gave them a constructive, creative, life-affirming way to work through their feelings of sadness about the storm and its impact on their Glen Arbor home.

“A Sign of the Times” is offered in conjunction with the GAAC exhibition “New Views: Home/Place,” a deep look into home and place identity. It runs June 7 – August 8 in the GAAC gallery.
